Ron Rakow (head of their record company) said they were researching a holographic pyramid that would store music. It seems to have been a hoax, though, but fooled many.

It was discussed at length in the article. I think "another pipe dream they got hustled by" there were many) would be more appropriate. Digital storage was mentioned. The concept of storage wasn't that similar to the cd, which was first explored in 1974. It would not surprise me if the information that Rolling Stone printed was altered along the way, but the Dead were staunch supporters of the digital concept very early on.
